2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml can from Binnys.
Pours a very clear, cloud free orange. Small white head and not as bubbly as most pils i’ve had. A sweet alcohol malt smell to it with some grassy hops as well. Very dry finish after a mildly wet mouthful. A pretty flavorful pils when it comes to hops and the sweet alcohol taste. Pretty bread-like too. Overall, I had extremely low expectations because it came in a can, but it turned out to be a pretty solid pils with a solid hoppy taste. Polish Pride!

Clear golden color, small white head. "Sweety" grassy hoppy aroma. Crisp, sweetish malty and hoppy flavor. Some herbal grassyness in the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a bright deep golden color with a thick whipped egg white head. Grassy fresh bread aroma. Sweet pale malt taste along with some bready notes and mild hoppiness. This is pretty decent. A mild flavorful pils w/o any of the negative alcohol esters you might expect from an advanced ABV. NOTE: I think freshness is the key here. Some of the more negative ratings could be attributable to the product sitting around too long.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Bottled at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Clear golden, rich but brief head. Fruity nose. Sweet and quite malty with rounded mouthfeel. Fruitiness dominates, the hops promised in the name stay well in the background until a late, somewhat resiny finish. A standard lager with a slight hoppy twist.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle, on clearance at Sam’s for 1.59- Pours with a generous head, collapses down a bit but stays a while, sticks to the glass. Typical straw colored pils, sweet malt aroma, faint hop character. Rich sweet malt body, almost balanced by a mild hop presence, tapers off to a malty finish. Smooth mouthfeel, unoffensive but also unimpressive. Right in the middle of the road for me. Drink when the alternative is Bud.
